Leadership is an adaptive process. The SLII® Experience, the most widely used leadership training program in the world, teaches leaders how to build meaningful connections with coworkers that create exponential impact. The situational leader addresses the individual needs, skill sets, strengths, and weaknesses of employees to help them meet business goals. Leaders adjust their leadership style rather than asking employees to adapt. Leaders who utilize different leadership styles improve organizational profits, achieve growth, and maintain a competitive edge.

By using the SLII® techniques, you can achieve greater productivity within your team as a situational leader. This style of leadership has been proven to help retain your most talented employees by being more responsive to their development needs.
